254 yrs for 16 yr old juvenile

http://www.courthousenews.com/2013/08/07/60085.htm

Excerpt....please read full article

 "Moore was sentenced to 254 years and four months in prison, and isn't eligible for parole until he serves half that time.
     "Thus, Moore will spend his life in prison because he would have to live to 144 years old to be eligible for parole," Judge Harry Pregerson wrote for the three-judge panel."

~~~~
Tho this child deserves punishment for his crimes, the stated sentence is NOT common sense, IMO, knowing no one lives that long, a boy at age 14, in Alaska, got 210 yrs for a school shooting.
In the eyes of the officials and society, they are already dead! What were the contributing factors that lead them to do these crimes?????  No on will ever know!
